Q1 cannabis sales in California fall to $1.25M, lowest level since pandemic

First-quarter cannabis sales in California slid to $1,249,584,223, the lowest quarterly total since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the latest statistics from the state’s Department of Tax and Fee Administration.

Sales were down 5.9% from the same quarter a year ago and the lowest since the second quarter of 2020, when sales were $1,153,285,028.


The first-quarter statistics put California’s marijuana operators on track to generate just less than $5 billion in sales this year, or 7.1% less than 2022, when taxable sales of recreational and medical marijuana eclipsed $5.3 billion.

If projections hold true, cannabis sales would fall for the second consecutive year in the world’s largest regulated market.

It’s the first time that has happened since regulations for adult-use retail sales were established in 2018.

Sales last year decreased 8.6% from roughly $5.8 billion in 2021, according to state data.
